I know there are many styles of painting frames out there, is there a "best" one? And what are the various usage techniques of them?

  • There is no best type of way to hang a painting frame. I've closed this because it is very subjective. – michaelpri Dec 14 '15 at 4:24
  • This question is not about best type of a frame - but how to hang a frame!!! Usually, frames are used for paintings. You know, like art pieced with paint on them... – Mike K Dec 14 '15 at 16:54

Thats a great question, few days ago I asked something similar but got put "on hold".

For the question I had, there was a "vintage" old frame that did not have a back cover and I was interested to know how to use it: enter image description here

The answer for my question at least was that there is a ridge in the inside frame where the glass cover can sit, and the art piece will be placed behind it. In turn, behind the art piece, a carboard or something solid will be placed to hold it in place. Now, because it is an older frame, the only way to secure the glass, art, and backing all together will be to drive small nails into the frame, bend them, and use them as stoppers.

Hope it helps.
